I also think "Mormon Temple" is pretty iffy, but if you're gonna accept it, you should probably also accept "LDS Temple".

I tried Mormon Tabernacle and Salt Lake City Tabernacle, but I didn't know what it was called - I just thought it was where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was based and went with that.

The Tabernacle is a different building. It's right next to the Temple.

Only a teeny bit of Lake Mead is showing, so that's a reach!

Since when has the Mormon Tabernacle stopped being called the Mormon Tabernacle?

Level 83
Apr 12, 2018
That's the temple; not the tabernacle. They're two completely separate buildings - the tabernacle has a distinctive rounded roof.

Almost all of the temples for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints have a statue of Angel Moroni on top. You can see it in the picture.

I tried Mormon Tabernacle. I didn't realize they were two different things.

Since you're being very specific about the temple clue; could you allow things like "salt lake city mormon temple" or "mormon temple salt lake city"? Seems unfair to penalize people for being too specific and calling it the name it's widely known as.

Temple Square was accepted for me.

US Capital is also the Congressional Building.

Capitol, not Capital.

Capitol = building;

Capital = city

Level 76

I never heard the capitol called the Congressional Building. It's called the U.S. Capitol or the Capitol building, and there are separate congressional office buildings such as the Longworth and Dirksen Congressional Office Buildings which are part of the U.S. Capitol Complex.

No mention on the Wiki article of it also being called the Congressional Building. Google search seems to agree with ander; "congressional building" is a generic term that does not refer to only one specific building.

I guess the Statue of Liberty was considered too easy? It's by far the most famous landmark of the US after all.
+1
Level 84
Jul 3, 2018
Is it "by far" more famous than the White House, which 100% of quiz takers recognize?
+2
Level 61
Jul 3, 2018
Devil's Tower is also often referred to as "Devil's Rock," and it'd be nice if this answer was also accepted.
